I have asked and pleaded for everyone to pick up their phones and call their Congressmen and Senators and DEMAND the careless, insane, dangerous reckless ROE's and catch and release policies STOP, untie the hands of these brave Warriors and let them fight this war to win it! I suggested General Petraeus get over there on foot patrol and take the traitor in the White House with him!
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! Read this Brave Soldier's letter. He is dead now! Call your Congressmen and Senators, call them all, the situation has so deteriorated for our Soldiers they will have to shoot their way out of there to get home! This is a national disgrace and I don't know how any American can sleep at night. They catch the damn terrorist and they are told to release the terrorist! I am convinced the chain of command doesn't give a damn about our Sons and Daughters. WELL WE DO AND WE BETTER LET THEM HEAR US!
Please pick up your phones tomorrow and demand the Troops be brought home! Let these savages over there blow each other up. I haven't heard a peep from General Petraeus and the foot patrol was his bright idea and it continues! Our Troops are being murdered with bullets to the back of the head that we supply!
This 82nd Airborne Hero took direction from his Grandmother and she has more sense than these reckless dangerous cowards running this mess! My deepest condolences to Grandma and her family. We have let your Grandson down and SHAME ON EVERYONE OF US IF WE LET ANYMORE OF OUR SOLDIERS DOWN! This cruel game Obama and these coward leaders are playing with the lives of our Soldiers must end now!
The enemy is laughing at us as they blow up and mutilate our Troops! Please forward this and post this and tomorrow, pick up your phone and call the local offices of your representatives, they are in their districts now!
NOT ONE MORE SOLDIER SHOULD DIE UNDER THE FAILED AND INSANE POLICIES OF THIS ADMINISTRATION! LET THEM SEND THEIR KIDS OVER THERE ON FOOT PATROL AND LET'S SEE PANETTA AND PETRAEUS BESIDE THEM!
Beverly Perlson The Band of Mothers
Florida Freeper Friends, I want to share this letter that was sent to Beverly Perlson from a dad of a U.S. Marine.
Thank you for sending. I will make the calls.
God bless and welcome this young warrior into his kingdom.
People do not know the Rules Of Engagement that our brave warriors must follow. If they did, they would be as outraged as you and I are.
For the life of me I cannot understand how people can cheer and vote for this Traitor In Chief. People who vote for this clown are only thinking of themselves. Everyday they are giving up liberties for a buck made by others. They are to lazy to earn their own way and are jealous of what hard working people have. This poor excuse for a president that occupies the White Mosque and it will be called that if given another 4 years doesn’t care one bit about our troops.
I was at a funeral service yesterday. A close friend of mine suffered a loss of his aunt that he dearly loved. At the service their were plenty of Vets around. His uncle told me that he served in the Navy, another brother served in the Marines, and 2 other brothers served in the Army. When I was leaving I noticed a gentlemen carrying a hat that had Marines on it. When I said Thank You for serving Devil Dog, he turned around and shook my hand with a big smile on his face. He started immediately telling me about his service to our country. From the day he went into the Marines and his fellow warriors who fought next to him. His eyes started to fill with tears and he said he didn’t know why he was the only one who made it back home, except that God must of had a plan for him. These are my hero’s, my mentors in life. They love God & Country.
Beverly, I can tell you that our troops “Thank You” for the support you give them and how you have their backs. I can say this because recently a bunch of Marines asked me to tell you Thank You for how you fought for their voting rights and much more.
Everyone please read, and share the attached, and say a prayer for this warrior and his family.
Proud Blue Star Dad of a United States Marine.
I am sick of this, too. My son has to go back there soon....for what?...so liberal men can stay here and sip their lattes..while our real men get killed....for nothing. I am beginning to agree with the leftist pukes that our sons are dying for oil...meanwhile we have enough of our own oil to bankrupt and starve the filthy savages.
In a perfect world, those "commanders," and their higher chain of command as high as it goes, would trigger a series of Courts Martial for treason.
I can't think of a better definition of an illegal order: sacrificing the lives of men under their command without a clear objective.
His letter is beyond heartbreaking. Petraeus, the architect of COIN, SHOULD partcipate in the foot patrols he thinks are so valuable under the same ROE’s we are forcing our military to endure. ......as the late author noted in his letter, for what purpose?
I think that we should have left Afghanistan years ago, but, this incident is not one to hang everything on. He didn’t want to take his Soldiers out on patrol. A patrol is not a Rule Of Engagement (ROE). Patrols are actually good things. They help you find out what’s going on outside the base camp. We have entire units in the military dedicated to going out and finding out what’s going on. The bad thing about patrols is that the enemy is out there and will try to kill you. It’s a dilemma: stay in the camp and let the enemy control everything, or get out on patrol and risk casualties. Tough call. I can guarantee you that whoever was in charge of security for that airbase in Afghanistan where they blew up those Harriers and killed the Commanding Officer is wishing that there had been more patrols out. For all the stupid stuff that has gone on there, a Commander who is requiring patrols is actually doing his job. And while it’s usually a good idea to tell American Soldiers why they’re required to do something, it isn’t always necessary or possible to do that. This was a good Soldier. He had a warrior’s heart. But I don’t see where his superiors were wrong. I’ve had my comments removed from Free Republic because of my cursing about what’s going on with our military. (Plant the seed) this (planting the seed) war in Afghanistan!
Anybody got a veteran's ping list, send 'em to this song!
Those in highest command and with the maximum brass **KNOW** that the occupant in the White House:
** posted FORGED birth documents
** FAILS e-verify
** uses ANOTHER MAN'S social security number
So?...If these perfumed princesses don't give a twit about their oath before God to defend the Constitution and its Article 2, Section 1, why would anyone believe that they care a twit about the brave and honorable military men and women serving under them? By supporting and upholding a likely pretender in the White House, is this how they watch the backs of our brave and honorable troops? Huh?
Personally, I have made a decision. If in the very unlikely possibility that I should be in the presence of these despicable men, I will turn my back. I will shun them.
Had a conversation recently with a young active duty Major (from my perspective as a Vietnam era Marine) who has served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He told me in no uncertain terms that we needed to get out of Afghanistan now ... it was a total shit hole with absolutely no redeeming virtues. I’ve been in this forum (FR) for a long time and I’m not making this up ... I’m not being any more specific because I want this officers opinion to remain anonymous.
Contact the Romney campaign and Col. Allen West, today!!! Our troops are demoralized and feel abandoned!!!
My heart really can’t take much more of this. Everytime I see Obama golfing I think about the amazing, gifted, heroic men we are losing because of him.
